historical oddity

Watching more Horatio Hornblower . . . .

Character: “I’m Jerome Bonaparte.”

Me: “No you’re not! You’re busy ruling Germany!”

Some history-checking later, I find out he hadn’t started ruling Germany yet (or rather, Westphalia), so I wasn’t allowed to yell at him for being in the middle of the ocean instead of where I thought he should be. But that was my knee-jerk reaction, and it amused me, because Jerome Bonaparte is a historical figure I’ve only recently learned anything about.

I like knowing random things.
